Was soll ich sonst mit meiner Dankbarkeit anfangen?

Father Richard John Neuhaus in seinem Thanksgiving-Posting :

"I remember reading an interview with novelist John Cheever, author of The Wapshot Chronicle and much else that is still worth reading. Cheever’s personal life was something of a shambles. For years he fought against alcoholism and depression, but he went to church regularly. Asked why, he said, 'I don’t know what else I would do with my gratitude.'

Which is not a bad summary of the Christian life: gratitude, as in thanksgiving, as in Eucharist."
